A shot in the dark here, but does any of the following track with any of your research?I am seeking information on the family and origins of ANNA MARIA BAUER who marriedDAVID TAFELMEYER (David was born 1639, and died 1713.)David was a carpenter.
They had a least one son, ANDREAS TAFELMEYER, b. 1673; d. 1739.He married MARGARETHA REIMETH.She was born 1680. Andreas was also a Carpenter.
ANDREAS and MARGARETHA had at least one son, JOHANNES TAFELMEYER, b. June 15, 1709, Germany.
JOHANNES3 TAFELMEYER (ANDREAS2, DAVID1) was born June 15, 1709 in Germany.He married ANN SELL 1734 in Phadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Johannes came to the US in 1732 aboard the ship "Pleasant", lived for a time in Philadelphia and married Miss Ann Sell there in 1734. Another son, Michael, was born to Ann and Johannes. Nothing is known of Ann and Johannes after a brief time spent in Maryland, but Michael and Martin were found to be in Augusta Co., VA, by 1770. That is where the Mungers had settled. In 1780, Martin Tofflemire and his family, along with the Munger family and some others, left Viginia and traveled to Kentucky.They were living at Ruddle's Fort on the Licking River when the fort was attacked by a party of British troops aided by Indians. The settlers were all captured and forced to march on foot to Detroit, where they were held until the Treat of Paris was signed in 1783. At that time they were free to go back to Kentucky or they could give allegiance to Britain and be granted land in the new settlement across the river in Essex County, Ontario. Since the family had no means to return to Kentucky, they took the land in Canada and became loyal citizens.
I was struck by your names of Johannes Andreas and Anna Barbara BAUER, parents of Elizabeth.Just a chance the names might somehow be connected.I know that it is very improbable, but you never know until you ask.
